Austin, TX (PRWEB) July 22, 2009
Cloud 9 Games rocked the International Christian Retail Show last week with a sneak preview of their new release, JAMband, the first Christian band game ever developed. Excitement from both kids and adults permeated the air as people of all ages tested their talents and competed for top scores.
A winner of one of the contests, sixteen year-old Josiah from Paw Paw, Michigan, stated, “JAMband was really entertaining and fun. It was easy to learn how to play and is a good game for anyone who enjoys music.” This PC-based game allows players to sing and play guitar, bass, or drums to hit Christian music. With this stand-alone Windows-based computer game, players can simply use their computer keyboard to play some fantastic riffs or tap to the rockin’ rhythm of great Christian songs. JAMband also supports many popular USB microphones plus USB guitar and drum controllers.
Players can choose from a variety of song styles, artists, rhythms, and instruments. Some of the 40 popular songs included are:
All About Love – Steven Curtis Chapman
Big House – Audio Adrenaline
Closer – Sanctus Real
Everything Glorious – The David Crowder Band
Fingerprints of God – Steven Curtis Chapman
Friends – Jump5
Get Down – Audio Adrenaline
God – Rebecca St. James
God Is In Control – Avalon
Going Under – This Beautiful Republic
Gone – tobyMac
Hands and Feet – Audio Adrenaline
Holy Is The Lord – Chris Tomlin
In The Light – dcTalk
Ocean Floor – Audio Adrenaline
Scream – ZOEgirl
Solid As The Rock – Avalon
Song of Hope – Robbie Seay Band
Whatever You’re Doing – Sanctus Real
Wise Up – Amy Grant
. . . and many more!
JAMband’s use of the original audio tracks means that when you play great, you sound great! As you improve your skills, you also get to unlock new clothing and instrument options as well as new performance venues. In addition, JAMband supports up to six players at a time, including 4 singers and 2 musicians playing guitar, bass, or drums. Those with a more competitive side can shred head to head with the bass or guitar.
